I’m on honeymoon without access to my console (can’t wait for Xcloud on IOS) but just got the Game Pass notification that the Beta is ready. Has anyone tried it yet?

I am still learning the game but holy shit its so much fun! I had ZERO interest in the game till I played the beta

The teamwork is MAD in this game. If anyone decides to go solo crazy lone wolf you're going to get S C R E W E D

The game modes are also fun and requires lots of teamwork because the cell collecting mode NEEDS protecting

Still playing and learning more along the way but damn this game surprised me. Share with us what you think of it

FYI, this is also on the PC game pass. Gonna try the beta out this weekend. Some of the character designs are really impressive.

Nice description. The game is fun! You on PC or Xbox?

You'll enjoy it I can feel it
I’m going to go in using Nidhoggr since he appeals to my esthetic. Nice to see everyone gets punk rock skins for playing the beta.

I only played during one of the very first test flights they did months ago... and back then I didn't hate it but wasn't fully feeling it either. it felt a bit convoluted.

I'm currently downloading the beta and will try it later, I wonder how much, if anything has changed since the early tests

I’ve got it pre-installed. Might give it a go tonight if I get a chance to fire up the Xbox. Need to get my Apex dailies done though 😖

okay so I tried to play it... and after connecting to 3 different matches I gave up.
every single match I came into was lagging to an extend where the game was literally unplayable.

and I know it's not my connection, I have an open NAT and other games run fine... wtf is going on here? am I getting thrown onto servers not in my region? and there is no server region select as far as I can tell.
downloading on PC right now... maybe I'll be more lucky there lol... and I just wanna try the controls on Mouse and Keyboard since on Controller I find them a bit finicky (I'll also try rebinding the hell out of them on Controller when I actually wanna start playing the game for real... becaus ethe default binds are horrible imo.)

I'll download this and give it a go tomorrow.

Not usually a fan of online games that are heavily reliant on communication because they live and die by the quality of the community (Overwatch's community is a joke for example), but I'll be open minded.

okay so I play a match on PC and it didn't lag, so far so good... and the controls are way better as well on mouse and keyboard so that's nice as too.

I still feel the game is a bit too convoluted when team fights happen... that's an issue when you make a team based game with lots of melee characters I guess. maybe that's just something you have to get used to, so I'll see if i can get into it, I will definitely play it with a couple of friends tomorrow and see how that goes... solo is not to be recommended... no one even remotely tried to communicate lol

I'm downloading it on the X right now. Sitting in a party with a few buddies...they are raving about it. Can't wait to try it out.

well the alpha didn't have this issue.

also I think I know what the issue is. this happend every single time where I was thrown into an already ongoing match (WHICH SHOULD NOT BE A THING TO BEGIN WITH BTW!)
every time I came into a new match the game ran flawlessly, and every single time, without any exceptions when I came into an ongoing game it was lagging like absolute crazy.

I played a few more matches on PC where I then noticed this
(it runs pretty damn well btw... highest settings at 1440p and 125% resolution scaling on a 1070oc at a flawless 60fps... it has a lock tho)

cool, i think this is one of those games where 144fps will make a big difference

yeah, I wonder if they will give an option to unlock the framerate tho.
maybe they will lock it to make crossplay fairer?

I really enjoyed it so far, probably will give it some more time tomorrow after work but my first impressions were pretty positive.

It’s a fun game. You can tell NT enjoyed making it and there’s tons of personality everywhere. Idk if it will be for me... I can’t stand MP games where I have to rely on teammates extensively and this game is basically a MOBA so it demands it.

does anyone else have an issue with unlocking this Hoverboard that you get by completing the 3 into missions? the last one (Finish 1 Game) doesn't complete for me. I finished multiple games and even tried not exiting at all and waiting for the game to kick me back to the main menu.
but it's still not completing
